It’s two days before Christmas and what do I see?

Visions of River Cruising appear before me


The Danube, the Main, the Rhine and Moselle

Oh, the stories these rivers do tell


The vineyards and castles perched high on a hill

Guarding the waters; Time standing still


From the City of Lights to old Normandy

The Eiffel, the Beaches, soaked with rich history


The Elbe, the Rhone, the Douro and Po

Let us not haste, the rivers we go


Amsterdam, Tulips, Ann Frank and Van Gogh

Visit vineyards along the rivers of the Bordeaux


Gastrominc delights, many tours to appeal

Fine wine and beer poured freely with meals


The beds with such comfort, the breathtaking views

Each morning so many options to choose


Culture through cruising with each destination

Mozart and cathedrals of past coronations


Let us not forget the festive holiday season

Amazing outdoor markets you’ll find very pleasing


Christmas lights all around the old market square

The smell of traditional Gluhwein fills the air


If visions of sugar plums dance in your head

Let’s replace them with a river cruise journey instead


It’s two days before Christmas with nothing to lose

Now let’s get you booked on your first river cruise


Enchanting, all inclusive, a journey so true

Happy Holidays from Fitzgerald Travel to you!


~ Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays everyone, Lisa
